    Yippee!!!!

    Not only is a new CN coming out I've just read slated for release this year we have CM Shock force 2 set in the Ukraine (excellent, funny enough I miss th emodern gear). Then big drumroll for Combat mission East Front! Yes it's set for release in the next 12 months!!!!

    "Combat Mission fans have a lot to look forward to in the next year as the CMx2 game engine continues to produce games at an every faster pace. At the moment we have three games in active development and more planned. While we aren't in a position to make detailed announcements right now, we can tell you what the three are about (in no particular order):

    1. CM: Battle for Normandy Module 2. This Module picks up where CM:BN and Commonwealth left off... with the September push out of France to the German border. The content centers around Operation Market Garden, though it covers more ground than just that. The game includes a number of new vehicles, formations, and new terrain models/textures. Adding new terrain, a first for any Module so far, ensures that you feel like you're fighting near Germany and not still back at the beacheads.

    2. CM: Eastern Front 1. The first of four Eastern Front "families" starts with Operation Bagration (June 1944) and eventually covers through to the end of the war (May 1945). For many tactical warfare enthusiasts, this period is considered the most tactically interesting since both sides were at their peak of their military technology, organization, and experience. The scope and scale of the combat offers plenty of subject matter to explore.

    3. CM: Shock Force 2. Our return to modern warfare is long overdue! Given how close Shock Force 1 was at predicting a conventional conflict in Syria, we're a little nervous about choosing a topic this time around. Especially because we've chosen to simulate a full spectrum conventional conflict between NATO and Russia in the Ukraine. This gives players a rich tactical environment to explore with the most advanced militaries the world has ever seen. Having said that, we hope the politicians aren't insane enough to try it for real. Even thought this is great stuff for a game, it's the last thing this world needs in real life.

    We have more games planned for 2013, however we are making no formal announcements at this time. These three mini-announcements should be enough to keep you busy for a while."

    Looks like a lot of CM for the up coming year. I'll give it to the end of 2013 and check it out then perhaps maybe. Never had any real issues with the game, just not a fan of the company's method of copy protection. Italy has more interest for me than Russia though.
    Please don't go on about how cool it is I like wargames. It gets old.
    Some of my comments are just me parroting his bitching.

    Are the updates applied to all the older titles as a backport?

    Well it was originally said that the new version wouldn't be backward compatible, however they have now said you can buy the update for CMBN, doubt it will be much and better than nothing at all.

    SOme have moaned about this but hey for along time now they said it couldn't be done. I doubt I will buy it though as I don't play CMBN enough.
